Please plan to join the OEC and our partners on October 1 for outdoor recreation followed by food, merriment, and conversation about the local outdoor recreation economy! We’ve partnered with Buckeye Trail Association, Rural Action, the Village of Shawnee and Tecumseh Commons, Burr Oak Getaways, and Appalachian Understories to organize a first-of-its-kind celebration of Southeast Ohio, its forest, and its people. Participate in trail runs or hiking, backpacking, and kayaking adventures led by local experts and outdoor guides or explore this beautiful region on your own schedule. In the late afternoon, we will come together in the Village of Shawnee to share food, merriment, and conversation related to how we move forward in relationship with our local forest. << Save the Date! >>
